Great idea with the yarn for the shoes! BTW those are some cute shoes grrl! Can't wait to see Sweet Pea all finished!


You know...that wouldn't be a bad set-up for an ad for luxury yarns...stuff the balls into a couple of open-toed Manolos or Jimmy Choos...


You are fabulous! I would have never thought in a million years to use yarn for shoe retainers, and I'm still laughing about it. Thanks for the great morning pick me up!

Do you still happen to have that pattern for the mittens holding hands? I was wondering if I could get a copy of it...


But wouldn't this make your yarn smell like feet?


LOL! I love your idea of what to do with spare skeins of yarn. I also like Franklin's idea for a photo shoot. How hip would that be?



Taht is a cute idea for the leftover skeins of yarn, plus to answer Jon's question, you can always wash the yarn, if you need to use it. Take the foot smell right on out, if it's even there.


Hey there everyone!

Sorry Jon, I should have been more specific. Those were summer shoes I wasn't wearing till spring. I cleaned them, then stuffed them.

I also used yarn that I was gonna toss out, so the foot smell wouldn't be an issue. If you just want to stash, rather than toss, you can wrap the balls in a bit of Seran Wrap. This way you don't have to wash the yarn. Thanks and good point!
